Why is white discharge coming out of my dog’s eyes and why are the eyes red? Dec 13, 2017

Hi Daljit,

Redness of the eyes and discharge could be signs of multiple possibilities. It may or may not be a simple fix. But your pet only have 2 eyes, so I would recommend getting them checked out by your veterinarian.

All the best,

Dr. Ryan Llera
